The Opener is trombonist Curtis Fuller's first album for Blue Note and it is a thoroughly impressive affair, working with a quintet featuring tenor saxophonist Hank Mobley, pianist Bobby Timmons, bassist Paul Chambers and drummer Art Taylor, Fuller runs through a set of three standards - "A Lovely Way To Spend An Evening," "Here's To My Lady," "Soon" - two originals and an Oscar Pettiford-penned calypso. The six songs give Fuller a chance to display his warm, fluid style in all of its variations.


1. A Lovely Way to Spend an Evening
2. Hugore
3. Oscalypso
4. Here’s to My Lady
5. Lizzie’s Bounce
6. Soon

This record is one of the rare trombone records, since in my opinion the trombone is an underestimated instrument. Often it is only used as support, but here you have it in the lead. It's difficult to recommend any special song, since you have to hear this record as a whole. In my opinion clearly a must have and especially in this pressing which reveals all the details - a record not to be missed!
